The Government's focus of clamping down on tax avoidance has resulted in new legislation designed to prevent many of the common structures a contractor may use from being effective. The legislation, GAAR (General Anti -Abuse Rule) became effective on the 17th June 2013 and will force many contractors to change the structure they are using currently and re-evaluate their methods of remuneration, almost certainly resulting in a significant drop in their returns from contracts.
Castlemaine Accountancy can provide a competitive and efficient standard Ltd Company package for those contractors moving away from the old high return structures but can also provide advice regarding high return structures that take GAAR into account, do not rely upon any offshore elements and fully abide by case law, HMRC’s disclosure rules and MSC (Managed Service Company) legislation.
Following a two year trial, HMRC has launched it’s “Alternative Dispute Resolution” (ADR) service with effect from the 2nd September 2013. The ADR is meant as an alternative way for small businesses and individuals to resolve disputes with the Revenue. The ADR service uses independent HMRC facilitators to resolve disputes between HMRC and customers during a compliance check. The aim of the service is to find a swift ,fair result for the parties involved and reduce costs. The service is available to individual taxpayers and small businesses where a tax issue is in dispute, regardless of whether a tax decision or assessment has been made by HMRC that can be appealed.READ MORE
